Rainy refractions

I’ve returned safely from the New Zealand winter and am back in the Nebraska summer. It’s quite a change, as I knew it would be. Usually my travels there have been the reverse, to escape the Nebraska winter. It was a very good trip, short though it was, and with much family activity. I had very good luck with the weather, as the norm is heavily overcast, chilly, rainy, and very windy. I’ve brought you a couple of posts that I made during the nice days, so I’d like to bring you one more from a more typical day. Rainy winter's day 9015I made this from Batty’s house just a few days ago, looking out at the foliage that flanks her deck. I’ve applied no filters here; the distortion you see is all natural, the details of the foliage having been simply refracted from the heavy rain pouring down the glass door.

  1. How incredibly lucky she is to be surrounded by so much gorgeous greenery :). I’m glad you had such a wonderful visit!

    How lush and green. Batty & family are very lucky indeed.

  3. Nice shot. At least you had some reasonable weather for your stay.

      Indeed we did. In fact, we had pretty much the full spectrum of what an Auckland winter has to offer–including the coldest day yet for the calendar year.

  4. I recognized the bush right away, of course, but I was hard-pressed to account for the lenticular patterns till I read your explanation.

      I, too, like to study a new photo first, before reading anything the author has written about it. I made a half-dozen or so shots through that window, and most of them were rather uninteresting, but this one stood out. I’m glad that you agree!
